During its annual board meeting in September, the NBC-HIS Executive Council appointed Jerome Goldstein, MD, to serve as the NBC-HIS Public Member from January 2008 through December 31, 2010. Earlier this year, the Executive Council voted to change the NBC-HIS bylaws from electing the Public Member of the council for 1 year terms to appointing him/her to a 3 year term.

Goldstein obtained his AB from the University of Rochester in 1957 and his MD from the State University of New York at Syracuse in 1963. He served his internship at Philadelphia General Hospital before completing his surgical training at the Bronx Municipal Hospital Center and his otolaryngology training at the State University of New York’s Upstate Medical Center. In 1968, Goldstein accepted a position as assistant professor in the department of otolaryngology and maxillofacial surgery at Northwestern University Medical School. In 1971, he entered into private practice in Glens Falls, NY, and 3 years later became head of the division of otolaryngology at Albany Medical College and Otolaryngologist-in-Chief at Albany Medical Center Hospital.

In 1984, Goldstein became executive vice president of the American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS), a position he held until 1994, when he became senior executive vice president. He also served on the Board of Directors of the American Board of Otolaryngology for 18 years.
